On Friday (March 2) police in Glossop and New Mills gave residents an insight into their work as they took to Twitter to describe their actions.
Officers from the area's Safer Neighbourhood and response team used the social media site to tell people more about what they get up to during a day's shift.
Messages were sent out on Derbyshire Constabulary's Twitter feed, @DerbysPolice, between 9am and 7pm, with the 'hashtag' #glossoppolice also available to follow.
Whilst on the beat, officers carried out raids at two addresses in Gamesley, aided by police dog Bonni. A 60-year-old man was arrested following the raids on suspicion of possession with intent to supply a Class B drug. Officers also seized around 12 plants they believed to be cannabis.
In the afternoon, officers took to the roads, and licensing checks were carried out in New Mills by the neighbourhood policing team.
Many of the Tweets were re-Tweeted, with Bonni the police dog being a particular favourite when her photograph appeared, capturing the hearts of our followers.
